the presidency, said, and the house and did not like george bush very much. sure hated losing to them in 2004. they did not quit. they kept working. they took the house and the senate and the white house. it played by the rules. we took them back in 2010. never try to impeach george bush. think long and hard. these things are difficult because it is always easy to say try it. we are doing is now working. usually what that means is we need to work harder for we doing . i am old enough to watch barry goldwater go down in flames. i hated it. it took 16 years to get ronald reagan. but when we got ronald reagan it changed america and the world and ended the old soviet system. so democracy is hard work, stuff like this, people going in knocking on doors, people, you know, going out and voting. we do it. our system works. it's hard to work, and it's hard to work in part because that is what the founders wanted to be. very afraid of centralized powerful government. it will make this difficult to do. but power announcer representatives with the people, the states every year, president that for four ye
w. bush -- >> in washington -- >> george w. bush had nancy pelosi as speaker of the house in 2007 and 2008, go back and look at what george w. bush did. when 80% of americans and probably 95% of people in the house were against the surge in iraq, you know what george bush said, we're going to do a surge in iraq. guess what? he got it through. he pushed it through. >> he had a relationship. >> he brow beat them. >> he talked to her. >> they talked to them, but they also pushed it through. it's not easy. >> you think that was his relationships or cheneys? >> i think cheney said things to members of the united states senate that did not -- >> alex is mad. >> coming up on "morning joe" -- >> what did he say to leahy? go -- yourself. i love that guy. i am not a shamed to say i love dick cheney. >> whoa. >> does that jar you too? >> excuse me? >> listen, you're jarred by all of these great americans i love. let me tell you something -- >> oh, my god. i just want to get to a break. >> do what you want to do. i will not sit here while you tear down the united states of america. j gentleme
is just a continuation of president george w. bush in the foreign policy realm where the president, this president is just continuing the hawkish policies of the bush administration. and then the next minute, they're claiming that the president is weak in foreign policy showing weakness to our enemies and yet, completely forgetting about all the drone strikes that the president is doing, and the other thing about what jim demint is doing which i find rather callous is would he rather the president of the united states not close the embassies and make our -- and make american personnel targets for a terrorist attack? i wonder what they would be saying if the president followed through on the advice that they're giving him. >> you mean another benghazi. >> yeah, exactly. >> benghazi, benghazi. right on cue, rick santorum not a foreign policy expert accused the president of being timid. i love the personifications, timid. muscular foreign policy. they turn on to some school yard kind of event. let's watch. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. i
council approve as has happened before, president george bush with iraq and president bill clinton with the co kosovo bombing in 1999. >>> live to the state department with an update from there. >> good avenue. we want to emphasize state department officials, white house officials, pentagon officials are emphasizing both on the record and privately that the commander in chief, president obama, has not yet made any decision about the action the united states is going to take in syria beyond the fact there will be an action. sources tell me the likely targtsz of the u.s. campaign will include the delivery systems for bashar al assad's chemicalarsenal. we are said to be striking command facilities located in damascus but also syria short range missile launches looking to conduct strikes against those targets. i'm told bashar al assad's presidential palace, some of the governmental military locations in damascus will not be targeted because a lot of key systems have been evacuated. a lot of artillery positions in the syrian government are located in mountains outside the city and those
of george bush for doing what we did in iraq. now, that's inconsistentents now. it's really baffling to see the people on the left just rallying behind president obama, yeah, go ahead. fire the missiles! we're with you. but the people who were so antiwar and anti-conflict in the past, now they're ready to go without even knowing where we're going. >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions still today. but one of the big questions this morning is what kind of chemical weapons does syria actually have? what evidence does the united states have? heather nauert is here to break it down. >> we are learning interesting information this morning. the syrian deputy foreign minister telling reporters that sarin gas was used in several parts of the country, but he claims the rebels were the ones responsible for that attack. this assertion is not banged by the us -- backed by the united states which believes the syrian government unleashed the attack and is the party responsible. but what is interesting about this statement, gretchen, is that it is the first time we're hearing from a syrian government
andduring during the george herbert walker bush administration, the anti- tank buster rounds that were 1982.ed in we are not totally innocent either. it is hard to believe the administration. i know they are doing their best to settle the conflict in the middle east. is kind of hard when you are just as dirty as the rest of them. you can also reach out to us via e-mail. andy from vernon, new york. thanks for holding on, republican line. taking myink you for call. i want to add onto to what the last guy said. ,f your audience goes to google they are going to find numerous stories where syrian rebels admitted to an associated press correspondent that they were responsible for the chemical weapons incident, which obama is trying to blame on bashar al- assad. the casualties were a result of by mishandling the weapons. they were told that they were not properly trained in handling the chemical weapons or even told what they were. that is where it came from. this is really reminiscent of the buildup to the first iraq war in the 90s when the iraq incubator incident, in which they fabricated story
president george w. bush made his case for going to war with iraq and why mideast dictator was an essential step for both the united states and the world. >> the iraqi regime is a serious and growing threat to peace. on the commands of a dictator, the regime is armed with biological and chemical weapons, possesses ballistic missiles, promotes international terror, and seeks nuclear weapons. >> nearly 11 years later another u.s. president is explaining why he feels getting involved in the middle east is in the best interest of the u.s. people. my next guest though says the similarities between the two conflicts are few. jane newton small is a terrific reporter and times magazine reporter. you've written an article that a lot of team are talking about for "time," "six ways syria 2013 isn't iraq in 2003." differences you say include how the u.s. is handling the regime, the time commitment given by the u.s., the support from the arab world and yooirp, weapons of mass destruction, and how much support there is from congress. let's begin with the first difference you list. regime change. explain
for. george w. bush had done that i think he would've been, we would've been heard cries of impeachment. we had part of our immigration laws suspended by the president. there's just a variety of issues like that where he has gone outside. we have tension with our system, struggles between congress and the president. this one is very -- i think you'll see it continue. but there will be legal cases. >> i'm going to try to bounce around a little bit but again we will get to everybody. >> i was a little concerned to find that you were not in support of making the continuing resolution contingent upon removing what optional spending you move on obamacare. i feel very strongly. i speak from a point of view -- [applause] >> i think they do, too. >> this is not theoretical for me because two weeks ago today my husband and i paid in cash for our son to have major surgery. but, you know, what? that's the price i paid for the liberty of my children. i'm self-employed. i understand the consequent of that as i've limited options thanks our government on insurance. i understand that i
they did? george h.w. bush, because about 20 years later, a woman showed up to one of his rallies with a pistol in her purse, and they were doing something they had done for the last 20 years that they had not done the 200 years before then. they were checking purses, too, and they found that. then you say to yourself, maybe what we need, maybe what we need is a racial squeaky fromm, and you start searching through the history books, you find out we had one.in 1901. raise your hand if you remember who was president before theodore roosevelt. no one remembered.a few guys, thank you. put those guys on "jeopardy!" most people forget when roosevelt came into the administration he was vice president and was somewhat who is this guy, this showboat guy from -- fighting wars in cuba. hat elevated him was that he was a very popular vice president for a popular president. it was mckinley.he was killed just after he was reelected. he was at a pan-american exposition, a world's fair in new york state. president mckinley was working the rope line, and a man standing at point blank range at the
friends. .hey were pretty frustrated they did not like george bush very much. they sure hated losing to him in 2004, even more than 2000. they did not quit. they took the house and the senate in 2006. they never try to impeach george bush. think long and hard. always easier to say try it. usually that means we need to work harder at what we are doing. i am old enough to watch barry goldwater go down in flames. took 16 years to get one old reagan -- to get ronald reagan. democracy is hard work. it is people going out and knocking on doors. is is people going out and voting. .ur system works it is hard to work in part because that is what the founders wanted to be. they are afraid of centralized power. they're going to make this very difficult to do. they're going to have this president for four years that selected this. there's no other system that is is as complex as ours to work and get things through. the founders but it was the best defense for liberty. out.large it has worked i believe that madison came back he would be very happy. sometimes they do. different point of view are s
on the health of former president george w. bush. he's back home resting one day after doctors surgically inserted a stint to ease a blocked artery. it was discovered during a routine physical. the president's doctors say he is doing great. >>> and it wasn't all terror and big brother with president obama on "the tonight show" last night. jay leno couldn't let him go without asking the president about his once-bitter rival turned confidant hillary clinton. the two had lunch last week at the white house. >> we had a great time. she had that post-administration glow. you know, when folks leave the white house. like two weeks later, they look great. but it was wonderful conversation. you know, by the end of my first term, you know, we had become genuinely close. i could not have more respect for her. she was a great secretary of state. very, very proud of the way she did it. >> did you notice her measuring the drapes or anything like that? >> keep in mind, she's been there before. >> that's true. >> she doesn't have to measure them. >> meanwhile, day two of deliberations in the whitey bulger
-- george w. bush-- was unable to attend today, as he recovers from a recent heart procedure. instead, he issued a statement saying: the moment that dr. king delivered his famous address-- with the appeal to "let freedom ring"-- was marked by a bell- ringing ceremony. that set the stage for the first african american president, who said the struggle for economic opportunity remains the nation's great unfinished business, but he voiced hope. there's a reason why so many who marched that day, and in the days to come, were young-- for the young are unconstrained by habits of fear, by the conventions of what is. they dared to dream differently, to imagine something better. and i am convinced that same imagination, the same hunger of purpose, stirs in this generation. we may not face the same dangers of 1963, but the fierce urgency of now remains. we may never duplicate the swelling crowds and dazzling procession of that day so long ago-- no one can match king's brilliance but the same flame can light the heart of all who are willing to take a first step towards justice. i know that flame rema

an issue of some level of hypocrisy in terms of the outrange that was heaped upon the george bush administration with respect to afghanistan and iraq. but there are some slight differences here. one to do with the documented facts of the u.s. of chemical weapons. number two, the general sense that this regime is unhenged and therefore needs to be contained in a way that you didn't necessarily see with the likes of some of the other players over the last few years, whether you're talking iran or whatever. so, i think that there's a different tone that you have with syria that you didn't have with the others. again, i harken back to similarities to kosovo from humanitarian perspective but it does put the democrats in a very ticklish box right now, particularly given the warriness of the american host: jim is on the line from texas. republican line. is whatmy question about this tainted election -- the obama administration. guest: in what respect? irs.r: the guest: the irs is a huge issue. i do not know how that translated in terms of a repressed election. that mightgroups have been
there were uncontrolled bureaucracies under george bush. it goes back to the thing we kind of started out with. the federal government is out of control. but it has been predicted by all of the historians that the republic would fail. the question is, how do we teach history, go back, every embrace the thing that made america great? and as i said earlier, i think we have to get in charge. i have been working for nine years to try to make a big difference. i have made a small difference. i worked every day trying to do things. i am convinced the only way we do that is half the state start exerting their temporary authority and reassessing -- [applause] -- changes to the constitution that restore federalism in the constitution. and so i think that is the way. you are frustrated. you want to see me in washington. asked my staff. as my wife. i want to pull my hair out. you know, i see two things. i see the constitution, and see what is happening to it. then i see grown men and women who know what the constitution says you don't care. that is what really makes me want to pull my hair out. they
happened to george w. bush. i would argue that he overreacted in some ways in terms of completely changing the strategic vision trying to remake the middle east, invading iraq and, you know, stuff like that. you could argue that perhaps the obama administration has under reacted to changes that have happened in the sense of not -- certainly not enunciating whether or not they developed it and overarching strat by for the middle east during and after the arab spring. >> tomorrow on "morning joe," new york police chief ray kelly will be here. >> great. >> also she hosted president obama at her home recently, former host of npr's all things considered, michele norris joins us. >> you did that. >> yeah. >> this weekend. >> he was there this weekend? coming this weekend. going to watch football. >> that's fun. >> he's going to love your apartment. >> little tight, mr. president. >> get together and do the interview. >> lot of toys. >> david letterman reacts to miley's vma performance. news you can't use is next. i'm tony siragusa and i'm training guys who leak a little, to guard their manhood w

the george w. bush administration and was part of the council of economic advisers. specimen so much for being here today. special thanks to mohammed el- erian and mr. taylor for flying from california. i went to kick off the panel with you. coined the term, the new normal in 2009. your outlook for the economy has been dead on. how much longer is this economy going to remain in the new normal? me take you back to 2009 when the new normal concept came out. the idea was to signal that it would not be your traditional cyclical recovery. unless the mindset in washington changed, and there was a better understanding of the underlying dynamics, we risked getting stuck. in a keyword of unusually sluggish clerk -- growth, high on implement, that is when it materialized. concept of the economy stuck in second gear. let me push this analogy. it is not just stuck in second gear, it is being driven on a foggy road. there is some good news. we are doing better than others. europe was in reverse and just went to neutral. japan has been neutral for a long time and just jumps to first gear. we are d
